Term 2 dates from 2nd of May - 9th of July

We are excited to announce we have opened up more Water Babies and Tots classes on Saturday’s!
Please refer to the full timetables for all lessons on our website . Please come in to book your child with us, spaces are filling up.

As we are a CVC venue, you will be required to:

  • Scan your vaccine pass upon entry (required for 12 years and older)
  • Continue to scan the QR code as you enter any of our facilities
  • Wear a mask through the reception area (and we encourage spectators to do so at all times).

COVID-19 Omicron is creating uncertain times for everyone. Classes may have to be cancelled if an outbreak does occur.

The Napier Aquatic Centre's Swim School is a nationally accredited QSSQuality Swim School (Quality Swim School) that provides professional swim instruction with classes catering for ages, from 6 months through to Adults. Our Swim School Instructors are all qualified through Swimming New Zealand, and work closely with Water Safety New Zealand. Most of our classes are intentionally kept to limited numbers to ensure that you or your child receives maximum attention from your instructor.



Enrolment is simple; stop by the Aquatic Centre and complete an enrolment form to confirm your place. 

Lessons are run during the school term and enrolments must be made prior to the commencement of each term. Prices for each class are available on our enrolment forms.

For lesson times and availability, check out our "Classes" on the Swim School page. NB. Due to our limited class numbers, vacancies are subject to change at short notice.  We endeavour to update this page on a regular basis but do not guarantee all spaces shown are always available.
